Ada Firefighter In Jail After Threatening Officer

Posted:

ADA, OK -- Social media comments have landed an Ada firefighter in jail.  Firefighter Jason Smeltz was arrested Tuesday morning.      

He's accused of making public threats to officer Brad Rhoades on Facebook after Roades arrested Smeltz's wife.      

According to an affidavit, officer Rhoades responded to a traffic stop in Ada where Smeltz's wife was arrested for public intoxication.

Smeltz  says he pleaded with Rhoades to give her a breathalizer test.      

The report says Rhoades asked Smeltz to leave the scene several times before Smeltz finally left, and that Smeltz then made several online threats towards Rhoades.
